Newcastle’s win over Bournemouth this afternoon saw the club win back-to-back games for the first time season.

The Magpies beat West Ham 3-2 in a five-goal thriller earlier this month, and the 2-1 win over the Cherries at St James’ Park extended their winning run, taking them to 11th in the Premier League table.

DeAndre Yedlin and Ciaran Clark scored either side of half-time to cancel out Harry Wilson’s early goal for Bournemouth, as Steve Bruce continues to surprise as Magpies manager, despite fans’ initial trepidation.

Responding to the result on social media following the full-time whistle on Tyneside, a number of Newcastle fans expressed their joy with the result, with many revelling in the club being higher placed than Manchester United and Tottenham in the Premier League table.
